At school and in the home

StarSpell is used at school and in the home.

Educationally sound and gimmick-free, StarSpell was created in conjunction with Margaret Hughes, an author, Educational Consultant, and a specialist in the learning of literacy.

StarSpell has been helping teachers to teach, and students to learn for more than 25 years.

Motivating, multi-sensory learning experience

The StarSpell Spelling mode is based upon the proven Look-Cover-Write-Check routine, enhancing it with sound, pictures and a supporting sentence, to create a powerful multi-sensory memorisation activity.

StarSpell uses both sentences and images to add context, which also assists with general literacy learning.

Carefully Graded Lists

StarSpell's main Spelling Lists contain more than 5,000 words, all of which are spoken, and organised according to Starspell's own phonic progression.

This carefully graded phonic sequence ensures that each word-list introduces only the one new letter-sound match belonging to that list. For example, church can't be in the "ur" list, because, with the "ur" list coming before the list introducing "ch", the learner hasn't yet met "ch".

The Prefixes, Suffixes and Roots lists introduce the study of morphemes and, coupled with the Further Explorations lists, provide some good material for etymological study.

The Curriculum Subject lists, for English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography and more, are a great resource for more advanced students to use during exam preparation.

There is a Phonics section for early learners, and further lists that support and extend the National Curriculum in England.
